That's really not the point.

What's the whole _reason_ for 2.6.x.y releases?

They should be safe, and OBVIOUS.

If there is a box that breaks with a 2.6.x.y release, then that .y release
was clearly a mistake, and fundamentally broke the whole point of the
stable tree. If you can't depend on the stable tree being a real
improvement - regardless of what hw you are on - then the stable tree has
lost all meaning, and you'd be better off just getting 2.6.x+1 instead.
